Dietary restraint and menstrual cycle phase modulated L-phenylalanine-induced satiety.


l-phenylalanine (Phe) has been shown to elicit release of the gut hormone cholecystokinin (CCK) and reduce energy intake. Furthermore, studies in some animal models demonstrate potentiation of CCK-induced satiety by estradiol (E(2)). As E(2) is elevated in the follicular phase, we expected greater satiety effects than in the luteal phase when the effects… (More)
